Toyota Tundra Speakers Not Working

Toyota Tundra Speakers Not Working

Toyota Tundra is a famous truck, but many people complain that its speakers do not work correctly after a few years.

Toyota Tundra speakers stop working due to damaged wires and loose connection with the amplifier. This also happens because of blown-out speakers due to fluctuating power sources, or they are pretty old to function appropriately. In addition, there may be some issue in the head unit, or its fuse can lead to this problem.

People like to enjoy music while traveling; if the speakers don’t work correctly or are completely out of order, the journey will be pretty monotonous. 

Damaged Speaker wires

Wires are an integral part of the proper functioning of speakers in the Toyota tundra. The quality of wires matters the most because the speaker’s working solely depends upon it.

You have to use the wires according to the voltage needed for the speaker’s capability. If you use low-quality cables, they will become faulty due to heavy voltage.

If the wires are not correctly attached to the power source, it will also cause issues. Poor insulation of wires is another problem that can cause melting due to overheating.

If the wires installed in the stereo system are old, they will get damaged early due to their low strength.

Sometimes, the wires get disturbed or even break off from the door speakers while opening and closing the doors of the Toyota Tundra.

We can sort out this issue by checking the connections at the site with the help of an external battery source.

Moreover, the power from the battery source also plays a significant role in the functioning of this audio system.

Many of my friends who use this pickup truck complain that their speakers are not working well due to less power supply from the battery source.

People also complain about the loss of functioning of their truck’s speakers on bumpy roads because of jumps.

You can resolve these issues by checking the connections of the wires properly and fixing the issue.

You should select the wires according to the intensity of the speakers. It is better to replace it if the wires are damaged.

Amplifier connection problem

The amplifier amplifies the signal with a small amplitude into an electrical current.

If the power supply to the amplifier is not proper, then it will start causing problems.

The humming sound can be due to inappropriate adjustment of the wires connected between the amplifier and the power source.

Sometimes the amplifier gets overheated when speakers are in continuous use. If you are listening at a louder pitch and for a long time, then distortion in voice can occur.

It is better to use good-quality accessories with the amplifier; otherwise, the sound quality will decrease.

Many of my friends have complained about the distortion in sound caused by the incorrect adjustment of ground wire and remote wire.

The connection of ground wire should be proper for adequate functioning of the speakers.

 If ground wires are not properly ground, then it will cause the problem.

You can check whether there is an issue in the amplifier of your stereo system or some other part just by renewing the other accessories like the cables.

If the speakers don’t work even after replacing them with new ones, there is an issue in the head unit, not in the amplifier. It is better to fix the issue to make Tundra speakers louder.

Damaged fuse

First, you have to check the site where the fuse is not working correctly.

You can evaluate the activity of the main fuse or the fuse attached to the amplifier. You should ensure that every connection is turned off when you check the fuse.

If the fuse abruptly gets blown out, it shows some issue in the amplifier’s wiring.

If the fuse does not work, even if the head unit is not providing the energy to the remote wire, then the amplifier power is causing the problem.

If the fuse blows out just after turning the volume up, it shows that there is an issue in the system’s wiring.

This happened with my truck last year when I added a high ampere amplifier with a low ampere fuse.

You should use the cold fuse in place of a warm fuse because it will take more power, and the chances of its distortion can get less.

You can solve this issue by replacing the faulty fuse with a new one having a high ampere which can work better in a high voltage circuit.

You have to use the fuse of at least 1-2 ampere more voltage than the previous one. It can handle more current and can last for a long.

The system must be grounded adequately, and the surface should be of the metal body. If the surface is painted, it cannot connect the wires properly.

Problems with the Head Unit

The head unit is the controlling site for sound, map reading, and changes in climate in the car.

It refers to the CD player, LED device, or some audio player installed in any truck.

It does not help make the sound quality better, but it helps maintain sound frequency.

If there is distortion in the voice or the sound does not come from the speaker, there is some issue in the head unit wiring and the main connection.

If the back of the head unit has loose joints, then it doesn’t work appropriately. However, if the speaker does not turn on, you cannot conclude that the head unit is faulty.

You have to check out all the possible reasons that either there is some issue in the wires or monitor the faulty fuses.

In some cases, the head unit enters the anti-theft mode in which the code of pickup radio is required.

You can check out the input sources like AUX cable input, CD player, or USB drive that can cause a problem in the sound system.

Old speakers

The most common issue with malfunctioning speakers is that they have been used for a long time.

As the sound system is in continuous use, it starts causing problems in the good quality, and distortion in the voice increases with time.

Some of my friends said that the wires get worn out after continuous use for 2-3 years. 

Some of my friends mentioned that sound quality can decrease due to truck movements.

A few of them said they used the speakers at a very high pitch for almost two years, and they got faulty.

You can clearly see the difference in the sound quality of the old and new Toyota tundra. 

The sound quality will decrease due to the accumulation of dust particles in the speakers.

Speakers blown

You can evaluate your speaker, whether these are blown out or not, just by assessing the quality of sound.

If there is buzzing, no vibration of speakers, no upright bass and tones, these are the clear signals of blown-out speakers.

This happens because of the continuous supply of electrical signals and for a very long time span. The heat is produced from the coils, which produce sound.

If you provide more power to the speakers, then its funnel-shaped part starts vibrating very fast, which ultimately leads to the wreckage of the cone.

You can fix this issue by using toilet paper and transparent nail paint. First, apply nail paint to the wrecked surface of the cone, place paper on it, and then let it dry.

You can adjust it by pasting another layer of paper on it if it does not sound smooth upon tapping the cone’s surface.

You can also use glue and water suspension on the damaged area to dry it. 

In this case, the only option is to replace the faulty speakers with new ones.
